Fruitive, Washington DC

      If you follow me you might know I was in Washington DC for Assam Convention. As a foodie, my travel won't be complete without exploring good the food scene.

      My absolute turn on in life is good food and books. When I entered Fruitive it clearly hooked me in no time. The chic urban cafe has so much to offer. A beautiful entrance-self full of books definitely got my heart.

      When we talk about good food, it should be easy, sustainable, transparent and straight from nature. Fruitive is the first certified organic fast food restaurant in North America and the menu embody all natural plant-based ingredients such as fruits, veggies, whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, herbs, and spices.

      A few barstools by the window and also outside sitting arrangement, Fruitive all vegan menu consists smoothies bowls and sandwiches wraps.

      I started my day lunch in Fruitive with a pressed juice called Immunity - green apple, lemon, ginger, and cayenne pepper.  Even though Indian origin is widely known for eating spicy food, I never had a spicy cold drink. If you are ready to give a spicy kick on your taste bud then immunity is your drink with the garden freshness of green apple and lemon.

      Then for the main food, I opted for Southwest wrap which consists of whole wheat tortilla, romaine lettuce, corn salsa, wild rice, grape tomatoes, cucumber, onions, avocado, spicy hummus and cherry on top sea salt and black pepper.  I love this innovative take on healthy food and is quite filling and must say, so yummy.

      My 9 and half year had Roasted red pepper panini in flax and spelt bread, roasted red pepper, spinach, cucumber, sriracha aioli, cashew cream, cayenne pepper and black pepper. The power pack and the nutrient dense sandwich was super succulent.

      Then hubs went for Mediterranean wrap which was on a wholewheat tortilla, spinach, Romanian lettuce, cucumber, green pepper, kalamata olives, garbanzo beans, original hummus and basil vinegarette.  The innovative and healthy sandwich oozed deliciousness in every bite.

      And then my little one had Almond banana toast flex and spelt bread, almond butter, banana, maple syrup and cocoa nibs. My five year old ditched the banana that day. The one good part of Fruitive is you can add or substracts ingredients. Some people add more power pack ingredients and some like my five-year-old ditched healthy option like banana even when you are in a healthy restaurant.  By the way, the smooth peanut butter and crunchy cocoa nibs made the toast decadent and delicious.

  Fruitive was a fruitful visit with all the good food which made you feel good, not guilty.

My favorite pieces of Assamese Traditional jewelry

My grandmother's thuria, age-old and heirloom jewelry, of course, not part-able         A piece of jewelry echoes a region's rich heritage, aesthetics and sensibilities and Assamese jewelry does not differ from that. A piece of jewelry not just enhances the wearer's beauty but identity as well.       A land of flamboyant rivers engulfed in exotic flora and fauna, birds, musical instruments Assamese jewelry is highly inspired by that. Sharing a few assamese pieces of jewelry from my personal collection.       An Assamese bride's dress up is incomplete without Assamese jewelry. Traditionally Assamese jewelry is purely handmade. The main frame is made out with 24-carat gold and lac is used as a filling material. Stones are studded on the top.  The creatively and meticulously studded stone craftsmanship resembles with pomegranate seeds. The color and texture of the stone are opulent and lurid just like pomegranate. Nowadays imitation Assamese jewelry are als

Keeping it simple-random things about me

Hello my dear readers, how are you all doing? Summer vacation has just started here on the east coast. My kids are having a gala time. I can't tell you how time is flying. My time is all occupied by them. Taking to them, playing with them, take them to the library, reading stories and most importantly cooking their favorite food. Hence thought, I'll keep it simple and straightforward. It has been more than a year now, and I have shared so many things about my life, travel, fashion, etc. Today I'll share a few random thoughts about me. 1. My favorite color - Navy blue, peach and off-white. Not that I don't wear any other color, but those colors are readily available in my wardrobe. 2. My favorite outfit - In western I love to wear a crisp white top and blue jeans. I know very casual. In Indian, I love sarees. Mostly, I love handwoven and handwork ones. I love salwar kurta too. You will find more solid colors then prints or patterns in my wardrobe. 3. Am I fitnes

Bartaco, West Hartford , Connecticut review

It was a usual February day, the chill felt like tucking in the furry comforter and stay cozy at home. But, the matter of the fact was that it was my birthday  and my family wanted me to take out for dinner. I was reluctant and wanted to stay at home. My little one was after me and I couldn't say no. I had no clue where we were heading for dinner and then here we were at the Bartaco. Vivacious Bartaco instantly took away my winter sluggishness. With a gracious greeting, modern contemporary laid back sitting and a bit of hustle and bustle made me alive in the winter freezing February. The high ceiling, ivory walls, earthy light shades stroked a tropical vibe and the food spoke a lot about Mexico and Latin America. As a sober, I chose housemade pomegranate lemonade and hubby got grapefruit ginger juice. I never had pomegranate lemonade before, I must say it was one of the coolest and refreshing lemonade I have ever had. The tint of lemonade not just took the look but
